Launching Pad for Australian Start Ups in Berlin
Steven Ciobo, Australia’s minister for trade and investment was in Berlin’s co-working space Rainmaking Loft this week to announce the selection of Berlin as the European launching pad for Australian Startups.He was joined by a number of guests, including 24IP’s own Robert Harrison. Rob, whose family come from Australia, was thrilled with the news. “There’s a growing startup ecosystem in the Berlin area and it’s great to see the Australian government supporting young and innovative companies to come to the city.” The Rainmaking Loft is located only a few hundred metres from our Berlin office and so it will be convenient if Australian companies use the location. We’ll be happy to help them with intellectual property matters with out knowledge of German and Australian law, as well as our connections worldwide”, he continued.
